(Originally written as Thought for the week for Berwick Advertiser, 17 April 2014)
I know I should give up, but I keep trying. I should leave it to the experts, but I try to Do It Myself. The lock on our front door is stiff. This morning, a visitor didnít shut it firmly and the door blew open. So I bought a new lock the same (standard) size as the old one, (almost) the same shape with (more or less) the same fixings.
After two hours with my rechargeable drill/driver I had to admit defeat. I couldnít make the outer and inner parts of the lock meet each other. So I put the old one back. I think they should call it D-I-M, because thatís how I usually feel. I just canít Do It Myself.
Weíve all yelled at the footballers on the telly. But armchair sports fans would not fare so well in the managerís job. Most of us are better at correcting others than at sorting our own lives out. But Jesus challenged his listeners: ďWhy do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brotherís eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?Ē (Matthew 7:3 NIV)
God will hold us each accountable for our actions. Jesusí death on the cross bought forgiveness for all our wrongdoing Ė something we couldnít do for ourselves.
Instead of trying to Do It Myself, Iíll stick to what I know, and phone the expert to Do It For Me! And Iíll also remember: Jesus THE expert on life is only a prayer away.
